Michael Bielaczyc Bio
Michael Bielaczyc has been making art his whole life, in various media and subjects.
He has been selling and showing work since 1995, when he self published a comic book written and illustrated by himself. Going back to college at 25, he decided that art was going to be his main focus in life.
In 2001, he started his own art company, Aradani Studios, which is owned by both him and his brother. Together they have shown and worked in shows across America selling both their artwork and costuming. Michael has worked for such popular roleplaying franchises such as Dragonlance and Castlemourn, but his real passion is in his personal work. He works in mediums from oil paint to latex prosthetics, video to graphite. You can see much of his new work at www.aradani.com .
